I've always loved their movies. I have most of them on dvd. While Leo and Huntz were key to the group, I will always have a soft spot for Bobby Jordan. He was the youngest of the original Deak End Kids and he was drafted into WW II and eventually phased out of the gang by taking a back seat to Hall and Gorcey who had developed a great comic chemistry.

 

Jordan showed a talent for comedy on his own in films like *A Slight Case of Murder* and *Off the Record.* He was rather tragic and died young from alcoholism.

 

Dead End Kids, East Side Kids, Bowery Boys, They went through a lot of transformations but kept right on working.

 

There is a Bobby Jordan Fan site that is pretty good.

The thing is that the guy who runs the site (check the forum) believes he's been in close touch with Bobby's ghost for the past few years. Kind of spooky.

You should check out the personal stories section.

 

Interesting what you find on the web a combo of Dead End Kid/Paranormal.

 

Now I'm scared. I don't want to go back there but I like the pictures.
